Instant Pot Fettuccine Alfredo is a one pot, dump and go pressure cooker dinner you’ll love. With the easiest prep imaginable and restaurant quality results, you’ll want to make this fettuccine over and over again!


  • 2 tbs butter
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 2 1/4 cups of water
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 16 ounces fettuccine
  • 1 c Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


Add the butter, pressed garlic, wine, water and heavy cream into the inner liner of the Pot. Stir it together. Break the noodles in half and add them to the liquid, criss crossing them over each other.
Add the broken in half noodles to the liquid. Criss cross them on top of each other by making small bundles of noodles and laying them in so they form an x. Push the noodles down so the liquid covers them all. Pressure cook. Secure the lid on the Pot and make sure the valve is set to seal. Pressure cook on high for 6-7 minutes depending on how firm you like your noodles. After the Pot beeps, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes. Then quick release the remaining pressure. Stir in the cheese.
Once the pressure is released, remove the lid.  Add the cheese and stir. The sauce will quickly thicken up. If it gets too thick, add another splash of heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and top with more cheese if desired and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
